  • Lisinopril gave me chronic hiccups
    My doctor added lisinopril to my regimen for high blood pressure and within 2 days I had chronic hiccups for 3 days. I stopped taking the lisinopril and the next day the hiccups stopped.
  • Avoid lisinopril or any ace inhibitor
    This was the only drug I was taking other than low-dose aspirin 3x/week.
    Within 2 days I began coughing, as though something was deep in my lungs; became long severe coughing fits than threw out my back, sore all over. Then began runny nose, exhaustion, occasional mild chest pain. Not connecting the dots, after a month of this I returned to my dr., who prescribed an antibiotic and inhaler, saying I had asthma! After a week starting feeling worse, sore throat and sore lungs from coughing, in bed from exhaustion.
    After reading on-line about identical symptoms from LISINOPRIL, I immediately stopped it; now, 2 weeks later I am beginning to feel better -- cough much better. I am hoping I will be one of the lucky ones who does not have the cough continue. By the way, this drug reduced my bp from 140/100 to 110/80 BUT I'd rather have high bp than take this poison.
    Now I learn than many deaths have resulted from use of Lisinopril. Had this drug caused my death, no one would know my story as I have no relatives to tell it; am assuming many unreported have died and of course are not able to go on-line and tell their story post-death!
    All I can do is ask WHY is this drug allowed to be sold -- even stranger, in my case the drugstore is giving this poison away at no charge -- a first; but WHY?
  • Garcinia and high blood pressure
    I am taking a weight loss pill last couple of days. Last two days after I ate cheese, I had headache and high blood pressure,nausea. Yesterday whole day I had stomach upset, pain, nausea. I am not going to take ot anymore.
  • Experience with morphine and xanax
    I take MS contin for back pain, and xanax for anxiety. I was in the heart unit, and they decided to give me my morphine through the central line because I was having a lot of pain. The nurse pushed it in really slow, and afterword they asked me if I wanted my xanax, and I took it as well. 1 mg. I don't know how much morphine they gave me, but i began to hallucinate. I thought was dying..I remember trying to talk but the words wouldn't come out. I thought the nurse was asking me if I believed in Christ, and I said yes I love the Lord. At some point I was sure I had died, but I was calm and peaceful..there were several nurses in the room and I thought omg.. they've been keeping the secret of what happens when you die. I told them I was leaving because I wanted to go out in the hall, I was sure my deceased mother was out there looking for me, so I tried to remove my IV to get out of bed. They stopped me and I remember the nurse saying no its not your time. And I woke up the next morning.
  • Dyphenhydramine and headaches horrible going one almost 24 hours a day for 4 weeks and cant get them to stop, now looking for cause . think its the dyphenhydramine im taking to help me sleep .
    have been taking 3 dyphenhydramine for some time to help me sleep , just in last few weeks began having severe headache almost all the time.. cant get it to go away. just found out it can cause headache and am going to lower my intake to one per night and see if my headaches get better. am taking migrane meds and that hasnt helped a bit so think its not migranes im having. some other reason.
